Since Google phased out the NPAPI, it cannot use flashplugin-nonfree. I understand it needs to use pepperflashplugin-nonfree, but it's not available in the repos.

Is it because of my /etc/apt/sources.list? It looks like that now:

deb http://ftp.bg.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.bg.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main
deb http://ftp.bg.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main
deb-src http://ftp.bg.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-updates main

Any changes I should make there? Or how do I install pepperflashplugin-nonfree?

You answered your own question, pepperflashplugin-nonfree is the way to go.

In your case, you need to enable the wheezy-backports repository, adding the following line to your sources.list:

deb http://http.debian.net/debian wheezy-backports main contrib non-free

Then, update the list of available packages with apt-get update, and finally install it with

apt-get -t wheezy-backports install pepperflashplugin-nonfree
  • Yes, I read on wiki.debian.org about pepperflashplugin-nonfree, but it somehow not working for me. It downloads google-chrome-stable and unpack libpepflashplayer.so (shared library), save it and configure chromium to use it. (It seems it also install google-chrome-stable not sure about it, I might install it myself.). PepperFlashPlayer works so far only with google-chrome-stable.
